Things to do for June 18, 2015

The Weekender

Porchlight, Rooftops and Old Watches

Goodness gracious, weekends of fire.

Thursday
Indecently Handsome Shoes and Watches
THE GOOD-LOOKING

Indecently Handsome Shoes and Watches

Riccardo Bestetti has never brought his bespoke-Italian-shoe operation to America. But he is now. And that’s what this is about. That and a lot of rare vintage Rolexes an Indianapolis horology expert is bringing to sell. Right, those are the things this was about.

Kim Gordon Is Also a Painter
THE ART DATE

Kim Gordon Is Also a Painter

You may know Kim Gordon as the quite legendary bassist of a quite legendary band called Sonic Youth. And that makes sense, because she is certainly that. But she’s also a painter, and you can see her work in that medium in Chelsea this weekend. Can and should, in fact.

A Massive Outdoor Bar in Ridgewood
THE OUTDOORS

A Massive Outdoor Bar in Ridgewood

Where the frontiers of Bushwick and Ridgewood meet, you’ll now find a vast outdoor bar with grass, ping-pong, beer, burgers and giant chess. And the place where Mister Sunday will be setting up shop this summer. It’s interborough cooperation.

Thursdays, 4pm-midnight; Fridays, 2pm-2am; Saturdays, noon-2am; Sundays, noon-midnight; Nowadays, 56-06 Cooper Ave (near Wyckoff)

Sunday
Cocktails and Crawfish at Porchlight
THE “BRUNCH”

Cocktails and Crawfish at Porchlight

We know you don’t have much interest in High Line­–inspired cocktails at a Danny Meyer spot just off of that High Line. But what if they were to sweeten the deal with a Sunday crawfish boil? We’ll wait while you consider this offer.

Through Sep 6, noon-9pm, Porchlight, 271 11th Ave (at 28th), 212-981-6188
